Located along the Manifold Cycle Track, Lee House Farm Cottage is semi-detached and can be found on the southern fringe of the Peak District National Park between the traditional market towns of Leek and Ashbourne, and a short distance from the village of Waterhouses. The owner lives on-site and is on hand should you need advice or assistance during your stay.
There is also ample walking and cycling direct from the doorstep, and bikes can be hired nearby to take advantage of the unique location. For those who don’t want to travel with bikes, cycle hire is conveniently available at the beginning of the Manifold Track. At the end of an energetic day’s worth of exploring, a superb wood-fired tub is available (£80 per night if used) and is just perfect to relax in and take in the surrounding environment in true peace and quiet.

Waterhouses is just 1½ miles away and offers a selection of shops, pubs and places to eat. Leek and Ashbourne can both be reached in around 20 minutes and provide ample amenities together with cobbled streets, well-preserved architecture and fascinating heritage. For thrillseekers and family days out, Alton Towers is also around 20 minutes with its theme park, waterpark and spa. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

About the local area

Leek is the principal town of the Staffordshire Moorlands on the south western edge of the Peak District National Park, situated in an elevated position by the River Churnet. The town has a long history being mentioned in the Doomsday Book, but it certainly pre-dates this.

In the late 18th and 19th centuries the town grew to become a centre of silk weaving and several mills were built at this time, however nothing now remains of the silk industry in Leek today. The town has a bustling shopping centre and a market every Wednesday and provides an excellent base from which to explore the south and western Peak District.

To the north within the Peak District National Park is an area of rock and heather called The Roaches, with Hen Cloud and Ramshaw Rocks, forming a gritstone escarpment which marks the south western edge of the national park. The Roaches consist of two edges, a lower and upper tier, with rock-steps connecting them. Hen Cloud is an imposing solitary edge which rises steeply from the ground. This whole area is well known to walkers and rock climbers, providing some of the best gritstone climbing in the country.
